Why Dancin' Dolphin Beach House (aka WC817) chose Whalehead Beach

Rented with other families & friends for years. Decided it would be nice to have a place to share year-round with family, friends and guests (for a reasonable price). So, bought a modest place and fixed it up with features we liked..or would have liked, in on our previous rentals.

What makes this house unique

* Sunrise and Moonlight walks on the beach.

* Sitting/Lying in the Crow's Nest on crystal clear nights, staring at the stars and listening to the sound of waves rolling on the beach.

* 3-parallel 3-mile long neighborhood streets - provide up to 6.5 mile riding/running/walking loop away from high-traffic roads.

* Walking to the Pub, Bacchus Wine & Cheese, or BuddaLicious for a break from the mid-day sun.

* Walking to the Corolla Movie & Bistro for a movie & bite on a rainy afternoon.

* Checking out Corolla Village and the view from the top of the Lighthouse on clear days

exceptional property

  • 5 of 5

The house was exceptional in that it had so many supplies in the kitchen that most beach houses never have like salad spinners, mixers, Tupperware with tops that fit, pyrex with tops, baking sheets, strainers, etc. I can't name all the kitchen tools it has that make a kitchen a home!

Thank you,

Family trip

  • 4 of 5

It was a good fit for our family, 6 adult and. 4 children , 15,13 10 and 6.

It was clean . Kitchen very well stocked. Pool was clean. The only reason we would not rent again was the 3rd floor with the living room, kitchen and dining room and one bedroom was inadequately air conditioned. The other 2 floors were almost too cool.

fantastic family weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

The house was awesome! It was everything it was described to be! We had 8 adults and 6 kids (ages 5-9) and there was simply not enough time in the weekend to fully enjoy everything the house has to offer! We WALKED to the jet ski rentals, sweet shop, beach, and could have walked too much more If we were interested!! It was a long drive up the highway, seemingly away from everything but the beach, right up until we were literally around the corner from the house, then we found ourselves in what can only be described as the center of the action in corolla! Loved it! We will be back!!

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

This home offers something for everyone. The home was very clean and well maintained. The kitchen was nicely equipped. Plenty of nice dishes, great silverware, and cook ware. There is huge selection of books and movies, puzzles and games and plenty of magazines. The hot tube and pool are very well maintained. We loved having the hot tube on the deck and not down by the pool. The beach chairs are in excellent shape. The home is in a great location, a couple of blocks from the beach and walking distance to a super market, shops, and restaurants, movie theater, mini golf and more. My family of 4 and our dog had a great vacation. Don't forget to go north to the 4x4 beaches and see the horses, and go south to Jockey Ridge State Park this is a must see and don't forget to bring boogie boards to slide down these incredible dunes. This house is accurately described and I would recommend it. Thank you for a great vacation. Ocean City, NJ
